Dodgers at Pirates, 3:35 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet PIT, SPNLA
RHP Tony Gonsolin (2-0, 1.64 ERA) faces RHP Bryse Wilson (0-1, 3.79 ERA). Gonsolin’s only gone past five innings once so far this season; in only one has he given up more than one run. This will be Wilson’s fourth start, but his last two appearances have been in relief. He’s given up no fewer than two runs in his starts. He’s gone no more than 4 1/3 innings in any of his five outings.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1953 With a double and home run, Roy Campanella drives in all the runs in the Dodgers’ 5-0 victory over the Phillies at Ebbets Field. Campy’s total of 40+ RBIs in the first 30 games will not be matched until Tino Martinez accomplishes the feat in 1997 with the Yankees.
- 1955 Dodger right-hander Don Newcombe faces only 27 batters when he one-hits Chicago at Wrigley Field, 3-0. Gene Baker, who will be thrown out trying to steal second base, ruins Newk’s bid for perfection, with a fourth-inning single.
Other historical notes: on this day in 1909 Fred Toney completes the longest no-hitter in organized baseball history, a 1-0 victory over the Lexington Colts of the Blue Grass League. As word spread around town about the Class D Winchester Hustlers right-hander’s performance on the mound, fans continued to stream into the ballpark before the lone run of the contest scored on a squeeze play in the bottom of the 17th. And if you thought the Phillies’ Ben Chapman was bigoted only toward African-Americans, think again. On this date in 1934 Ben Chapman, who will lead the protest against Jackie Robinson in 1947, harasses a Jewish fan during a Yankees’ 13-3 victory of the White Sox at the Bronx ballpark. The New York left fielder shouts disparaging epithets and taunts the team’s supporter with Nazi salutes.
